2013 Mechanical Engineering Internships
Mechanical engineering encompasses several engineering disciplines and was developed as a result of applying principles of physics and materials science. Mechanical engineering is based on generation and application of heat and mechanical power and the design, production, and use of machines and tools. The discipline demands a thorough understanding of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials science, and energy. Interns can use these skills in various jobs involving manufacturing plants, industrial equipment, machinery, heating and cooling systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, and more. Internships are extremely helpful in building the right kind of exposure in the chosen discipline. It helps in determining your field of interest and helps in creating professional networks and contacts that could aid you later in your career.
